About Us

The Team Behind San Diego Midwife

In 2004 Jamin and La Shel met in the birthing world. Both had taken some time off, Jamin to be with her newborn son, Liam and La Shel from working at the very busy Birth Center, Best Start.


They initially assisted each other with their home births but very quickly they decided to create a practice together. Having both worked in hospital settings, birth centers and home births they had very similar backgrounds, guidelines and like minded spirits.
